Yet, I did see a BEAUTIFUL card on Stampin Connect that used a couple of the stamps and not using the 2 step, so I'll make that one instead.
BTW, concerning my SAMJ, I LOST the acrylic insert that went into it. Will just a piece of cut transparency work? other ideas?
Depending on the imgage, I don't always use my SAMJ for 2-step stamping. If it is off a little I think it gives it interesting look.
I use unmounted/clear mount stamps and to make sure I can perfectly place a flower stem to the flower, I trim the rubber exactly at the edge of the stem so that I know if the edge of the rubber is at the base of the flower the stem will be stamped perfectly.
is a sample of the Reason to Smile set not using the 2-step and I cut the stem close to the edge so I didn't need to use my SAMJ.
